We had a very, very nice experience at Riad Zarka (April 08) .

I would echo the advice of other reviewers that you MUST arrange to have them pick you up, as you will NEVER find it by yourself (even though getting back is easy once you know the way). When we called about this we got a French only speaker, but we then emailed in English and heard back from the proprietress and all was fine.

It is lovely. Pretty general areas. Rooms small but nice, clean, and comfortable. Conveniently located, a few minutes walk from the main square. Staff extraordinarily accommodating (though linguistically limited - not a problem for us, perhaps more for others)

Nevertheless worth noting to the negative side: the included breakfast is very modest indeed. And perhaps more seriously, though we had absolutely no problem, some may feel uneasy walking back to the Riad after the shops along the way have closed (9:30-10) - not a problem for us at all since our habit is a not too late dinner then back to the Riad for a glass of wine and to bed early enough to get up and going pretty early the next day; but perhaps more serious for someone who habitually wants to return late from the club scene or whatever.

But for us a very happy stay - we'd defintiely go there again and recommend it highly.

While difficult to find upon first arriving, Zarka is a gem that is nearby to the souqs and the centre of the medina. We stayed in the Green room, but every aspect of the riad that we saw maintained the same charm and flavour, and everything was decorated with both taste and comfort in mind. The staff was also very helpful and friendly. We highly recommend this location.

Two women travelling alone for the first time in Marrakech and can't wait to return. Riad Zarka could not have been more conveniently located. Staff extremely helpful, and breakfast brilliant. Great to sit in the courtyard in the evenings. We stayed in the blue room, which was really authentic, and the shower was lovely and the complimentary toiletries were great. We went shopping and returned with our bargains on a regular basis as Riad Zarka really is less than two minutes from the madness that is Marrakech. What a wonderful city and what a fabulous place to stay. Can't wait to bring our families back.

We stayed at this little hotel in Feb 07 for some couple of days. The hotel, which is an authentic old riad, is very well located in the medina, very calm but close to the souk. A lot of effort has been made in decorating the court yard, roof terrace and the rooms. Our room located on the groundfloor was very small but clean and with nice pieces of furniture. We recommend.

We enjoyed a 5 days stay in Riad Zarka, which is located right in the hard of Medina's souks near the town square Jeema-I-Fna.

The riad might be difficult to find for travellers who have just arrived in Marrakech. But we were pick-up at the airport by a staff member who guided us trough Medina's mazes. Once found it is not difficult to find it again.

We stayed in the yellow room with 3 adults and a extra single bed was arranged for us. It was very nice, and OK, since we were out most of the time, but some may find it to small for 3, if you are not a couple with child.

The staff is friendly, very helpful and available during most time of the day and evening. The included breakfast was splendid every day, with various kinds of pancakes, bread, orange juice, yoghurt and thee or a very good coffee (actually the best we found in Marrakech).

Riad Zarka's best feature however is its roof terrace with various loungy seats were we enjoyed almost al sunsets during our holiday.

I recommend Riad Zarka to anyone who wants a pleasant and relaxed stay in the hard of the crowded Medina Marrakech.
